New Hunter model signals good things for Swiss Army KnivesBy Staff Writer 9 November 2018 | Categories: news
Victorinox always had a good thing going with their Swiss Army Knife. Having evolved to different forms, it has remained a strong favourite amongst knife lovers everywhere. However, one thing that has come to hinder the brand is the fact that it was carried lying inside your pocket, and not like many EDC favourites such as Spyderco, with a clip for easy access.
In what could only be described as a major step for the brand, their latest – the Hunter Pro M Alox knife, has been released with a pocket clip. It allows one to carry the knife tip down and clipped to your pocket, making it easy to take out and open one-handedly (via the blade hole) in one easy step. Moreover, it comes with a paracord pendant to not only help with grip in hand but also in the bush in those rare cases of emergency where paracord might come in handy.
In our opinion, the Hunter Pro M Alox is a great looking knife not least because of the alox scales on the sides. It’s easy to believe that the silver scales that it currently sports might just be start for this range. From our side we would love to see it integrated with the famous red or blue alox, or even wooden scales from other Swiss knives such as the RangerWood models.
With a length of 136 mm the knife falls amongst the larger Swiss Army Knife standards, with the blade also locking in place by what we believe is a linerlock.
At this stage we could not actually find the Victorinox Hunter Pro M Alox knife on sale in South Africa, however, you can expect to pay a minimum of R1 000 for this model across the pond.
